Probably OT, but important...Motherboard Information

Currently there are no dual CPU mobo's for the Athlon.  Last week in San
Jose , AMD has it's first public demonstration of a multiprocessor computer
designed  specifically to work with AMD processors.

Although AMD is being tight lipped about this mobo, it looks to be made by a
company called  "Iwill " an OEM mobo manufacturer.  Tyan is also working on
a board code named  "Lions"... a pretty slick board with dual NIC's,
integrated dual 160Mb SCSI.

Timing on the release  of this mobo is veiled in secrecy... looks like late
Q4/ early Q1 2001.
